Pones is pleased to announce it has been approved by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) to receive a Challenge America award of $10,000.
This grant will support our work with UpSpring, The Carnegie, Good Samaritan Hospital, MOVE, and teacher training. This grant is one of 262 Challenge America awards totaling $2.62 million that were announced by the NEA as part of its first round of fiscal year 2023 grants.
“The National Endowment for the Arts is proud to support arts projects in communities nationwide,” said NEA Chair Maria Rosario Jackson, PhD. “Projects such as this one with Pones strengthen arts and cultural ecosystems, provide equitable opportunities for arts participation and practice, and contribute to the health of our communities and our economy.”
